Our new (to us) 2004 Winnebago Brave 34D

Hi everyone, we are Jim and Bonnie and have recently acquired a Winnebago HOORAY. First winnebago we have owned. We have owned fifth wheels, class C's, a diesel pusher, and several class A's.

Well in stumbling around on the web one day, I spied this Winnebago for sale near our home listed for 24.5k so we decided to check it out, having recently sold our fiver.

The good and bad. The bad it had set most of its life in the Arizona Sun and the never turned her around! so the passenger side was baked, the sun did a number on the cirrus blue paint on the baggage doors and the decals, drivers side was nice.

At least they kept the blinds closed as the interior was pristine. The engine and Transmission were great although it was a quart and a half low on oil when I checked it. No smoke after filling it up and test driving and pulled great of course it has that big 8.1L Chevy engine. Course it needed tires, the main awning was rotten, and they had cut it off, the slide out awning on the bedroom slide was gone along with the roller, also the slide awing on the drivers side had also been cut off as it was rotten, but the roller was still there.

To make a long story longer, haggled them down to 16.5K and bought it and drove it home WOOHOO, couldn't hardly keep her on the road due to the shocks being stock, leaking and non functioning. Got her home and started renovations. See my post on new bilstein shocks. Also am going to show how I wrangled the old tube tv's out and replaced them with flat screens, and changed out that old chunk of iron hanging down in the center, its all flat and beautiful now, or soon will be

Sorry don't know why some pictures comes out upside down.

Looks like progress!
On the pictures, I might guess they were taken with a cell phone and they have info on the image for which way is up and if the phone is turned the other way it says up is down???
One has to be wide awake and really consistent with which way to turn the phone!
Why no RV year, make and floorplan on MY signature as we suggest for others?
I currently DO NOT have one!
